First Stills of Lee Jung Jae and Shin Mina in jTBC Political Drama Aide

There are plenty of trendy dramas but upcoming jTBC drama Aide straddles the line of both trendy and serious. Leads Shin Mina and Lee Jung Jae are veterans yet still quite popular with their fans for a stable of great movies and dramas under their belt.

I find both leads looking hot as hell already in their drama stills, Lee Jung Jae makes 40 look like the new 20 and Shin Mina is ravishing in a chic bob and no nonsense attitude. Aide is airing in multi-seasons with the first season being a 10-episode offering starting this June. Continue reading
